The "war on drugs" didn't begin with Richard Nixon. It is an outgrowth of a 1961 United Nations document called the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, which created the framework for a global drug prohibition jihad.
In that same year, the JFK administration published a proposal called "Freedom from War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World," also known as State Department Document 7277. That proposal, which remains the operational framework for U.S. arms control policy, called for the creation of a nationalized, militarized "homeland security force" -- in other words, exactly the kind of overtly militarized law enforcement bodies that have been prosecuting the "war on drugs."
Residents of Washington and Colorado, expressing a winsome and entirely unjustified faith in voting as a means of reining in the state, approved measures decriminalizing recreational use of marijuana. In response, Raymond Yans, head of the UN's International Narcotics Control Board, has called for Attorney General Eric Holder to ignore the law and continue cracking down on marijuana use and possession. Decriminalizing marijuana use, Yans insists, sends the "wrong message to the rest of the nation and it sends a wrong message abroad."
Like other prohibitionist Pharisees, Yans is willing to see people killed, kidnapped, and caged in order to send a "message." Most of the same conservatives who properly abhor the UN and all of its works and pomps also support drug prohibition. Now that a high-ranking UN functionary has offered an official directive to Washington demanding that the Obama administration escalate its war against the American people, will conservatives of that ilk finally come out in opposition to drug prohibition?
